I have a 85 chevy and on the way home after filling it up in stopped running. It would not fire from that point on. What could cause it not to fire?

I have checked all the plugs and wires, replaced the coil, the ignition module, and checked fuses under dashboard. Still doesn't fire. What else can I try?
